This excursion was fun and exciting once we got out to the viewing area. At first we had to wait for the boat to come in and clear off before we could go out, so the boat was NOT ready for us when we arrived. Once on the boat, we rode for about 15 mins before stopping to see some very pretty fish. Then we rode for another 15 mins or so to see sharks! This was interesting....the two young men in charge would put bait on a rope and dangle it off the side of the boat to attract the sharks. Once the shark bit into the bait, the young man would pull the rope AND THE SHARK up out of the water. Talk about a close up look at a shark! We also saw a tug boat that had sunk and reefs, very pretty, and barracudas. The two young men in charge were very nice and informative on some of the buildings and beaches around. I though the excursion would have been longer, but really glad it wasn't because the water was very choppy this day and I had to use my "seaband".

Our tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The tour lasted about an hour and was the highlight of my time in Freeport. We saw coral, fish, barracudas and SHARKS!!!! Loved it and highly recommend it. It only cost about 40.00 and was really worth every penny.
Port Lucaya marketplace was really beautiful. I went there last year and hated it. What a difference a year makes. I loved the marketplace. It was beautiful and I didn't have enough time there.

Our excursion was canceled due to ocean conditions. We got our money back, but there was no time to book a replacement.

Boat trip was enjoyable, disappointed in clarity of glass and visibility. Most enjoyable part was guide on bus.

1. Glass bottom boat trip was worth the price, but the time spent viewing the fish through the glass bottom and the sharks both under and (fed by the crew) alongside the boat was fairly short. 2. Compared with Nassau, the port area in Freeport was as day is to night.: disembarkation is to an open sunny area, shops/food stands easily accessible, live (good) music playing (Singer "Matisse" is one of the Island's best). Passengers were dancing to her singing). The shops were friendly. 3. Driver of bus ("Duane") was proud of his Island, conveyed happiness while giving info about both the passing sights and the governance, history, policies (e.g., no income tax) and culture of the Island.
